Crossing borders: How-to for visiting neighboring countries
FLYING
You may be intimidated by the thought of international flying, particularly with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Electronic Advance Passenger Information System — eAPIS — which was implemented in 2009. While you are subjected to major fines if you don't comply, it is not a very complicated system.

FAA updates automated clearance procedures
AINonline
The FAA published an update to the 13-year-old order governing procedures for issuing departure clearance using the pre-departure clearance system available through the electronic control tower datalink system. The change resulted from the agency and user community jointly identifying several inconsistencies in the process, as well as misunderstandings about how the process is understood by those receiving clearances.

Airworthiness directive on Cessna twins does not apply to all aircraft
FLYING
Since 1997, Cessna has been telling pilots of most of its light twins not to fly in known icing — but not all. Cessna issued a Mandatory Service Bulletin back then (MEB97-4) requiring that those twins not approved for flight in known icing have placards installed to that effect, and also advising an increase in approach speed should icing be encountered by accident.

Truth or dare: Telling the FAA about your health
By Paul Engstrom, aviation writer and IFA member
For pilots with health problems that aren't debilitating but possibly disqualifying, 'fessing up on the application for a third class medical certificate can be a busted-if-you-do, busted-if-you-don't proposition. Too much information could mean denial of the application and bureaucratic warfare with the FAA. Too little or false information could park a pilot on the ground — permanently — and lead to fines and jail time if authorities detect a lie or deceit.

There are two schools of thought on this issue: "If you wanna fly, you gotta lie" versus "Honesty is always the best policy." However, a large gray area separates these two extremes.
